Introduction

The core mission of the University of Dundee is to transform lives, locally and globally, through the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. The teaching at Dundee has been rated among the very best in the United Kingdom, and is matched by a strong research profile, particularly in the areas of Life Sciences and Medicine. Student satisfaction is high, with the University consistently ranked among the best places to study in the UK, both in the National Student Survey and the International Student Barometer. Graduates also enjoy excellent prospects, with Dundee in the UK top ten for graduate employment. Founded in 1881, Dundee was initially joined with University of St Andrews, which resulted in Dundee having the structures and customs of an ancient university, coupled with the drive and ambition of a much younger institution. It has been an independent institution for the past 50 years. The combination of the strong research portfolio and excellent teaching means that this relatively small and friendly institution punches far above its class on the international stage, while excellence in teaching is demonstrated by strong international student recruitment and high student satisfaction. Over 140 nationalities are represented in the student body. Nobel Prize winning poet and honorary graduate Seamus Heaney has described the University of Dundee as "having its head in the clouds and its feet firmly on the ground." The ability to be both aspirational and down-to earth, to blend ground-breaking intellectual achievement with practical applications, has given the University its distinctive character. Today this is seen in excellence in teaching and research and a strong contribution to the social, economic and cultural life of Scotland and the wider world. Dundee is powering forward to become Scotland’s leading university, with a portfolio of learning and teaching, research and impact which is already world-leading in many areas.
